Discussion article for the meetup : San Francisco / App Academy meetup [LOCATION CHANGE]
I've recently arrived in San Francisco for App Academy, and it turns out there are several other LessWrongers in the program. It's a cool group of people, including a guy who studied AIXI at ANU under Marcus Hutter. We talked it over and decided to organize our own meetup at Olivos, a restaurant that's within 20 minutes walking distance of the App Academy office. We'll be discussing Brian Tomasik's essay The Importance of Wild-Animal Suffering. Please read it ahead of time; it's short. The intent is for people to be able to get food and/or drinks if they want to, but it's not assumed that everyone will. RSVP's are appreciated so we can make a reservation, but we'll try to save a couple seats for any extra people who show up. EDIT: After talking amonst ourselves, we decided to change the choice of restaurant.
